Trump defends calls for foreign help probing Biden

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he's only concerned about investigating corruption and not the politics surrounding his calls for a probe into Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

He also defends his call on foreign countries to assist in such a probe.

Trump defends calls for foreign help probing Biden

On Thursday Trump, a Republican, urged China to investigate Biden, a Democrat, triggering concerns that he was again inviting foreign interference in a U.S. election.

His comments come as Democrats want to prove Trump sought personal political gain by appealing to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July 25 phone call to investigate Biden and his son Hunter, who earned money from a Ukrainian gas company.

Last week Trump released a record of that call.

Joe Biden, the former vice president, leads in most opinion polls among the 19 Democrats seeking their party's nomination to take on Trump in the November 2020 election.
